Paul Simon speaks exclusively to Tom Moon about his latest collection:
Q What was your goal with this collection?
A The Songwriter albums (Can you still call them albums?) are a collection of the best, or anyway, my most typical song-thinking. I left off some good ones—You Can Call Me Al, Mrs. Robinson, The Late Great Johnny Ace—but I tried to include songs that weren’t hit singles as well as the better known songs. I don’t always like the hits and I don’t usually pick the singles. That’s record company territory.
“Songwriter” will be in stores everywhere October 24th!
